If you love cats or libraries or both, this book is for you. I do. A small gray kitten is found in a book slot deposit, more dead than alive, in the middle of an Iowan winter. After a bath, a warm-up, and a recovery from frostbitten feet pads, it turns out the kitten is an orange tabby; he is adopted by the Spencer Free Library and after a naming contest, becomes Dewey Readmore Books. In the 1980s, things were rough in Iowa: farmers went bankrupt, then their banks followed, and towns too. Dewey, on the other hand, seemed to represent hope: he had a knack for making friends, seeming to intuitively know who needed his help most, such as the head librarian (serious health problems) or handicapped children or someone having a bad day. His antics are very funny for cat lovers, such as his love for catnip, rubber bands, boxes, etc. There is a great story about his trying to alert the staff to a bat loose in the library. Dewey's fame spread everywhere because he was special.

P.S. My only complaint was that like The Lord of the Rings movie, it ended too many times. ( )

The personality of this cat was impressive with its love of wanting to be by and around people. Liked how she waited at the door each day, loved boxes and overhead lights, typewriters and it's eating habits of being finicky and made a point of appreciating the library clientele by responding to everybody. The author really wants the reader to know what a small town librarian has to do. A bit over done about the terrific town, too much info about the owners personal life, and too much repetition about the cats abilities. ( )

This was cute, but inflated. I had the feeling the author set down to write the book but then realized she didn't have enough material, so there's a lot of miscellaneous information about Iowa that has nothing to do with the cute cat, but that was OK. I learned some stuff about corn. I am dubious about the author's claim that corn makes up 70 percent of the American diet. Additionally, this book ends like books about animals told from a person's point of view always end, so if you're sensitive about that kind of thing, be warned. ( )

It was ok. I bought it from the Half-Price Books summer sale and discovered why so many copies are for resale each summer at the convention center. ( )

Definitivamente gato não é o animal que mais gosto, na realidade não gosto, então por que comecei a ler este livro? Talvez pelo ambiente central do enredo ser uma biblioteca, acho que aqui acaba o motivo.
Mas eu não imaginei que o livro fosse tão chato. A autora discorre sobre a presença de Dewey ma biblioteca, mas gasta muitas páginas com relatos sobre a cidade onde mora, detalhando o tamanho da cidade, a distância para outras cidades etc., etc., etc.
Se tornou uma leitura cansativa, embora algumas passagens sejam bem animadas, todas relacionadas a presença do gato e como ajudou na revitalização da biblioteca. Eu, particularmente, não me imagino em um ambiente com um gato, então...
O nome do gato é em homenagem a Melvin Dewey, criador de um código de classificação utilizado até hoje, ideia de bibliotecária. ( )

One frigid Midwestern winter night in 1988, a ginger kitten was shoved into the after-hours book-return slot at the public library in Spencer, Iowa. And in this tender story, Myron, the library director, tells of the impact the cat, named DeweyReadmore Books, had on the library and its patrons, and on Myron herself. Through her developing relationship with the feline, Myron recounts the economic and social history of Spencer as well as her own success story—despite an alcoholic husband, living on welfare, and health problems ranging from the difficult birth of her daughter, Jodi, to breast cancer. After her divorce, Myron graduated college (the first in her family) and stumbled into a library job. She quickly rose to become director, realizing early on that this was a job I could love for the rest of my life. Dewey, meanwhile, brings disabled children out of their shells, invites businessmen to pet him with one hand while holding the Wall Street Journal with the other, eats rubber bands and becomes a media darling. The book is not only a tribute to a cat—anthropomorphized to a degree that can strain credulity (Dewey plays hide and seek with Myron, can read her thoughts, is mortified by his hair balls)—it's a love letter to libraries. (Sept.)
